of state hillary clinton being treated now at a new york hospital for a blood clot. joining me from new york presbyterian nbc's chief science and health correspondent robert bazell. what do we know this morning, bob? >> reporter: well, chris, since we've been talking about this last night we don't have a lot of information. we just have this one statement from secretary clinton's office and the hospital is not saying anything. a lot of doctors are telling me the information in that statement is a bit contradictory. here's why. they say that she has a blood clot that stemmed from a concussion she got several weeks ago. but the problem is, blood clots that stem from concussions don't usually get treated with blood thinning drugs which is what they say they're doing here. either she has a concussion someplace else that may not -- excuse me -- a blood clot someplace else that may not be related to the concussion or there is more to her health that we don't know about. they say they're watching her closely for a couple days. we will have to continue to watch ourselves to see what the situati
is the time to move forward. >> you make a good point. there's a suggestion in the "new york times" today that even if there is a deal, even if the president and speaker boehner can come to some sort of an agreement, there is the conservative wing of his party who could possibly block it. are you worried about even if there is an agreement between these two key players, that the republican side could keep it from happening? >> if speaker boehner exercises the leadership of his office and brings in a reasonably balanced program, he can pass that. he may not get the super majority among the republicans, he needs democratic votes in order to pass it. we understand that. but that's a good deal. where democrats and republicans come together to pass the legislation. don't do it just by getting the support within your own party. you need to reach out to the democrats. >> senator ben cardin, good to see you. thank you so much. >> thank you. >>> interesting, isn't it, how both sides have exactly the same message about who is compromising here and who is offering a plan. >> who has the ball on the

subjects completely because this is sort of the provocative headline. new york city mayor bloomberg called hillary clinton and said you should be my successor as mayor. how do you think that conversation went? i think being a mayor of new york city gives you an opportunity to imagine things that are possible but not in real life. i can imagine how hillary clinton would be enticed to take on that smaller stage after her staging as the nation and the world for the last decade. >> jim, i wonder if she was flattered by it or thought to herself, i'm on the world stage here. why would i go and become mayor of new york city? >> i mean, everything i've read about sect clinton suggests that she's looking forward to a break at the end of this year. i don't think running for mayor is very conducive to that. it's not my idea of a relaxing time but i may be wrong. >> people are joking that mayor bloomberg looks tired. it's a big job. but the one thing she's been consistent about, she needs to sleep a little. great to see you. jim, thank you as well. >>> meantime, the u.s. navy is denying iran's claim t
" columnist and our politics reporter. good morning. so the headline in the "new york times" is pushing the gop to negotiate, obama ends giving in. and peter baker writes that president obama has emerged kind of a different style of negotiator in the past week or two, sticking to the liberal line, frustrating the republicans clearly. this is a strategy his base might like but i'm wondering will it make him a better deal maker? >> it just may mean that republicans ultimately give him close to what he wants on raising tax rates on the top 2%. president obama has been very clear, he was all the way through the campaign that he would not give in on that. so that's i think what's important now. republicans don't like a lot of what was in the white house's opening offer. they dictate the $50 billion stimulus that was in the offer as a slap in the face. some of these little things we'll see taken out of file deal. >> to that point here's john boehner talking about when he saw that opening offer. >> i was flabbergasted. i looked at him and said you can't be serious. i just never seen anything l
night, there was a moment of silence to honor the victims. the headlines in "the new york times" today, i think to your point, "after tragedy partisanship may cool a bit." it does seem that the president and john boehner are closer to a deal. do you think this tragedy may soften the issues, not related to guns, but issues like that that may be related to this terrible tragedy, but maybe to the fiscal cliff negotiations? >> i think it could have that side benefit. i think no one wants to appear petty at this moment because the situation that you're reporting on so well is so grave and so sad. so thing that can help bring us together will -- is beneficial. and i think that the tone is definitely changing up here. i had a conversation with a republican from my state, it was a private conversation, so i won't say the name. he's an a-rated nra supporter. and he said, the president's right. we need to do something. those kind of conversations, i think, are going to become much more frequent as the days and weeks go by. >> congressman john yarmuth, thank you for taking the time to talk to us.
in front of a train in new york. >>> secretary of state hillary clinton heads back to work next week. she was sidelined for almost three weeks due to a concussion. doctors have grounded her from overseas travel for several more weeks. >>> it's not over yet. another plast of snow is expected this weekend for parts of the country in addition to this. stretches of new england still digging out. this is the scene in maine where the governor made the call wednesday to close all state officers because of that snow. the strong wind and rain create a coastal flooding mess there. let's get the details from the weather channel's nick walker. whoa's going to get hid again? >> it looks like a break in some of those areas, but there is plenty back toward your west. that will be moving into the northeast as we head into your weekend, producing snow on top of that. it's pretty light here around chicago, milwaukee, toward the minneapolis area where we've seen a few airport delays simply due to icing and snow removal there. nothing 345i7b8g, but a lot of moisture is off to the south, produces thunderstorm
are now a party of two, the president and the speaker. the "new york times" reporting that house speaker john boehner wants to speak only to president obama out of public view. though we've just learned that boehner is holding a news conference at 11:00 this morning eastern time. the fight, though, still very public. vice president joe biden is meeting with a middle class family. and yesterday president obama met with a virginia family. tax hikes for the rich are nonnegotiable. >> just to be clear, i'm not going to sign any package that somehow prevents the top rate from going up for folks at the top 2%. but i do remain optimistic that we can get something done that is for families like this one. >> joining me now is barry, msnbc political contributor and editor for grio. hello, guys. >> perry, i'm wondering if these new unemployment numbers add to the president's leverage? >> i think they do. the big thing is the election. but the jobs numbers suggest that the economy is doing well and it cuts against the republican argument that raising taxes on the rich with would hurt the economy and
and wrote about the similarities in the new york times op ed. good morning. >> thanks for having me. >> your piece was titled "what drives suicidal mass killers" and you wrote for years the conventional wisdom has been that suicide terrorists are rational political actors while suicidal rampage shooters are meanta willy disturbed loners, but they have far more in common than recognized. >> they have a tremendous amount in common. underneath it all is the desire to kill and be killed, but really, i point to three major factors, mental illness and suicidal desires, perceived victimization. they feel that their pain is someone else's fault or they've been oppressed and bullied and the third factor is they want attention and social recognition and they want to get that by these attacks and they will get that after their deaths result in fame and glory. >> are their reasons pretty intense and personal. i'm thinking about the other reports that adam lanza who is apparently close to almost no one but his mother that she had been traveling more, there were some reports that she was talking about pot
hole. >> stand by. i want to bring in congressman steve israel, democrat from new york, head of the democratic congressional campaign committee. good morning, congressman. >> hey, chris. >> a lot of things to talk about. we just heard from the white house that the president said -- he already said he was against plan b. now they're saying that for some reason it got through the house, he would veto it. where are you in terms of revenue? $400,000 is not -- is not a number that is workable for the republicans, is there another number you think would be acceptable to the democrats? >> actually i think $400,000 is about right. i actually had some concerns with the initial figure $250,000, $250,000 may make you rich in some areas of the country, does not make you rich in very high cost of living areas like long island. and so i think the president has shown a remarkable compromise going from 250 to 400. what we need the republicans to do is show their share compromise. the american people aren't interested in plan a, not interested in plan b, they're interested in plan c. plan c i
but there's an article on the front page of the "new york times" that suggests that speaker boehner is actually in a stronger position in his caucus than when he was elected two years ago. how is he doing, do you think? >> well, i think he's in a stronger position because republicans feel like they're in a weaker position. i think a lot of republicans who might prefer a different leader don't feel they have the luxury of that right now. in fact, even congressman kantor and others, who boehner didn't think he could count on the last time around, are being supportive. republicans are trying to calculate how much they have to give in now and is there a way to fall back with the idea of being able to move ahead in a more aggressive way next year. that's why you saw the president in a very preemptive way trying to rule out the idea of tying talks to next february to raising the debt ceiling. >> alan simpson, the co-chair of the president's deficit commission, was on the "today" show this morning and he said all this talk about either side being able to go off the cliff is ridiculous. let
clinton once she steps town at secretary of state likely next month. but "the new york times" also says that she's telling people who want to book her in 2013, call back in april or may. in the meantime, all of those myriad choices hinge on one other decision. the decision. 2016. and republicans are taking notice. >> a fair competitor in '16 is going to be hillary clinton supported by bill clinton and presumably a still relatively popular president barack obama. trying to win that will be truly the super bowl. and the republican party today is incapable of competing at that level. >> joining me now, democratic strategist danielle gibbs. that's a pretty big admission. newt gingrich saying republicans would be incapable of beating hillary clinton in 2016. do you agree with your old boss, david? >> what he's saying is at this point given the way republicans are running campaigns, given what we just saw with governor romney campaigning and the couple of the senate campaigns, in terms of being able to be an effective political force, in terms of running a campaign against someone who's going
details about the upstate new york attack on firefighters. christmas eve. police saying that william spangler left a note to burn down the neighborhood and do what he quote does best, killing people. authorities say they found a three-page note with the body of his sister in the burn out wreckage of his home. police say he killed two firefighters and wounded two more. when they responded to the fire, he set at the home on monday and used the same type of rifle in the newtown school shooting that left 26 people dead.

capacity clips. new york city mayor michael bloomberg, who has been an outspoken gun control advocate, will make an announcement on gun violence in just a couple of hours. he's calling on the president to take the lead. >> we've got to really question whether military style weapons with big magazines belongs on the streets of america in this day and age. nobody questions the second amendment's right to bear arms but i don't think the founding fathers had the idea that every man, woman and child could carry an assault weapon, and i think the president, through his leadership, could get a bill like that through congress. but at least he's got to try. >> let's bring in dan gross, president of the brady campaign to prevent gun violence. dan, thanks so much for being with us. as you know, this tragedy has struck so deeply at the hearts of americans but at the same time, the nra is not going to go away so let me ask you a strategic question. how do you maximize your chances of getting some meaningful legislation passed in congress? >> i think it comes down to a simple formula which is make
as part of the fiscal cliff deal. look at the numbers from the "new york times" to see why. there are 234 house republican there's this 113th congress. 85% of them won re-election easily with at least 55% of the vote. and almost all were re-elect we'd the promise not to raise taxes. so what is their obligation to their voters and can john boehner make a switch palatable? i'm joined now by former ohio governor ted strickland and former campaign manager for mike huckabee chip satsman. good morning. >> good morning. >> what do the lawmakers owe their constituents on the promise not to raise tax she's. >> i think they owe the country. good governance. and obviously every member of congress has an obligation to their particular district and their particular constituents, but they also have a larger obligation, i believe, to the well-being of the country as a total. and so we are in a situation where some difficult decisions have to be made, but i believe the well being of the country must take precedent over every other consideration. >> of course, chip, a lot of those constituents don't think
that the best time is right now because we have another debt ceiling increase coming. >> you've told "the new york times" you think your party is boxed in. i want to read from "washington times" "republican leaders struggled tuesday to contain the backlash from conservatives of the gop's offer of $800 billion in tax increases to head off the fiscal cliff, a move that didn't impress the white house even as it spawned a rebellion on the right." so are republicans going to have to give on raising rates? >> no. we're not, because where the president is focused in on is the affordable care act taxes they increase january the 1st on people making $200,000 or more. the president wants a rate increase coming in january on people making $200,000 or more and go into next year's negotiations on reforming the tax code and he's looking at a single year time period to have three tax increases on the same group of folks, we're saying that's dramatic on the economy, that will slow down development of our economy in a time we're looking to increase more jobs, why would we do this? how does this stimulate the
in new york on charges of conspiracy and falsifying records. bernie madoff is serving a 150 year prison term. >>> finally, we're still here. these pictures are from a ceremony led by mayan priests in guatemala marking the end of the mayan calendar, aka, what was supposed to be the end of the world. no word on what doom sayers camped out at this mountain in france are doing today. they have been there for days believing that when the end of the world came a ufo would come to the mountain and rescue them. >>> got milk? you could be in for a major shock. mandy is here with what's moving your money. prices, i saw this headline and couldn't believe it. 6 to $8 a gallon? >> it is unbelievable. that is if congress does not pass a new farm bill, chris, that amends farm policy that dates back to the truman presidency. obviously this has been kind of lost in that brouhaha of what's going on between the obama administration and republicans over the fiscal cliff and the budget wranglings, and there is believe it or not an impasse over a farm bill that covers billions in agricultural programs and wi
